A wedding party in front of a kitschy, ruled on canvas painted waterfall, next to the left and right, the bare earth, and the sheer misery. A concrete staircase that stands in the middle of the barren landscape.

Her face is a landscape of the soul, which can be impressed and great hope for the future of the actress. And when she smiles in a scene in the film by Claudia Llosa A pearl eternity at last, that’s like a gift to a dreary autumn morning. (Joachim Kurz)
